Reem Island Residentia Towerl
STATUS: Design
YEAR: 2017

Located in a natural island 600 metres off the Coast of Abu Dhabi Island, the residential tower has a strategic location next to the waterfront and the bridge which connects Reem and Al Maryah islands. Offering world-class luxurious apartments, the concept design proposes a reinterpretation of the use of traditional materials as well as maximizing the access of light, taking advantage of its location in a corner plot.

The residents of the 434 apartments and duplexes also enjoy common spaces like a beautifully crafted reception area, where slatted wood in the walls creates a playful light-and-shadow effect showcasing a vertical geometry which uplifts the space to a contemporary language. A similar style is followed in the lift lobby, where the lifts are framed by thin slatted wood which set an elegant tone and a contrast note with the neutral colors of the walls and the skylight-type rectangular lighting which brightens up the space as well as providing an interesting design touch.

The apartments feature bright spaces with excellent views and state-of-the-art fittings and materials. Every element has a practical purpose as well as an aesthetic identity which portrays a stylish and luxurious lifestyle for the residents of the tower. Other shared spaces include a children’s play area on the ground floor, a gym and health club areas, a multipurpose room and a spectacular pool deck on the 31st floor.
